The Bride of Frankenstein

by Elizabeth Hand
The Bride of Frankenstein - Elizabeth Hand 7.00   1

A media tie-in. A reinterpretation of the film Bride of Frankenstein (IMDB link).

Attempting to create life through dreadful experiments, Henry Frankenstein and Dr. Pretorius instead created unspeakable horror: two misshapen monsters, a brutish male and his female mate, stitched together from the bodies of cadavers. Crafted to be the monster's bride – an undead Eve to an equally accursed Adam – the female creature was destroyed mere minutes after taking its first breath – or was it?

This new novel by the critically acclaimed Elizabeth Hand reinterprets the memorable characters from Universal Picture's classic 1935 film for a new generation of horror fans. Detailing the bride of Frankenstein's secret history, from the shadows of forgotten laboratories to the streets of Weimar Germany, Hand creates a richly atmospheric tale of horror, mystery, and tragedy as chilling as the creature itself.
